Re: End of Windows 7 support

Michael Harris

This has been popping up on my PC for quite a while. Win7/64 Pro here.

I would suspect that a huge number of Win powered PC's are still running Win7, indeed some folks are still running 98 and XP.

Until fairly recently I would not have been able to live with the Win10 massive updates but now my data package gives my 4GB monthly I could handle it with care.

Updates on my now nine year old desk top PC failed to work for about a year until I did a complete reload and update of Win7 and all the application software onto a new HDD. The sky didn't fall down. I don't respond to click bait or view emails from folks I know are SK, or "we are contacting you because you bought some Widgets from us" or blank and otherwise stupid subject lines and the like. If I receive an email from my bank I don't like the look of I phone them to ask if it's for real.

After January 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or support for PCs with Windows 7. Upgrade to Windows 10 now to keep your employees productive and secure.
